Memo

BILL NUMBER:S4740A

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the tax law, in relation to allowing the subtraction from adjusted gross income of gambling losses incurred during a taxable year for state personal income tax purposes

PURPOSE:

Would allow all New York taxpayers, regardless of income, to deduct gambling losses from their Federal Adjusted Gross Income which is used as the basis for calculating New York taxable income and taxes thereby decreasing their NY taxable income.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section 1 allows New York personal income tax filers to deduct the entire amount of incurred gambling loses regardless of income.

Section 2 sets forth the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:

Certain New York taxpayers, because of their income, either cannot deduct or cannot fully deduct the totality of their gambling losses on their New York State Personal Income Tax Submission to the NYS Department of Taxation and Finance. This current situation is unfair and should be remedied.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:

S. 4740 - Referred to Investigations and Government Operations.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:

To be determined.

EFFECTIVE DATE:

Immediately.
